So here's a good one for all to see.....
This is what happens when your wife thinks you should spend more time thinking of her, and less time building airplanes.....
OF COURSE assaulting the police is also a bad idea and will land you in JAIL..
She learned that lesson, last night.........PS
Don't pity ME....lets just all say a prayer for Dollar Bill and big brother Two Dollar Bill

So in this episode we finally install the last of the electronics and will try to get her off the ground, we hope...initial testing of the motor found that a 7x3 prop seems to give the best results...lackluster in power with a 2s it seems,Oh well..drive on..


So after that we went outside.
I know I promised to video but still do not have that capability, but, we can safely say that she does and can fly.
I only took a short hop down the street, but with only 10 g motor it took about a hundred feet to get in the air and remained stable and responsive as I gently set her back down, upon landing one of the crappy little light weight axles came loose and the plane kind of skidded to a stop in a circular fashion, no harm,...... test was a success, even if lackluster at best...
Still waiting on that 24g motor.........???, more to come later.

Well after careful consideration, I felt the little airplane was on a crash course with disaster before it even left the ground, as I added components it became clear that foam board was too thin and flimsy to support any kind of weight and would snap in a dive.....SO what is the remedy...CARBON FIBER.....also we will get into weight reduction too.....and other fun stuff ...Continue Reading

Well, all went as I had hoped it would, the cub will now turn on a dime and handles very well. Sorry I don't have a video camera at this time or I would include video as well.
It went from hardly steering at all to full proportional steering in under 20 minutes and cost less than two dollars..What an improvement...More updates to come.
